iPad Our Classroom!
My students need three iPads to develop important cognitive, communication, and social skills for success in school and life.
Yes, there's an app for that! And we would love to use it on iPads in our classroom.
My students are elementary students with special needs.
Most spend a majority of the school day with grade level peers in their classrooms and receive specialized instruction in our resource room for part of their school day. Their learning challenges include specific learning disabilities, autism, social/behavioral skills deficits, and impairments due to birth defects or health issues. Several have significant fine motor skills deficits which make writing a laborious process. Most of their homes are not environments rich in literature or technology. They struggle to acquire skills needed to be successful at school and in life.
Students attend a neighborhood elementary school with a high rate of students qualifying for free and reduced lunches. Our community was impacted by an EF-5 tornado in the spring.
Technology allows and challenges students to achieve at their highest levels. The iPad provides nearly endless options to meet diverse needs while engaging students in meaningful learning. My little ones who have significant fine motor delays can learn to form letters, numbers and shapes without struggling to control a pencil. Important reading, writing, and math skills will develop and strengthen with students eager to learn and practice. Additionally, the communication options iPad provides may open the floodgates for a student who hasn't had much to "say". The portability of the iPad makes it perfect for traveling with a student between resource room and classroom.
Students with much to overcome benefit tremendously from this technology that provides both active engagement in learning and intriguing means of communication.
